The birthday gift of a great camera was all the motivation I needed to expand my horizons beyond family snapshots. I read all the books I could find and took rolls of slide and print film.

I learned to critique my work more thoroughly, and to look for the unexpected. Most of all I learned the patience to wait for a shot, though it is a skill I need more time to master.
